I’m a Family Feud fan. Steve Harvey is the best. But I’m uneasy as the first question is asked. It often begins, “We asked a hundred women…” Whatever the rest of the question is, it often leaves an opening for an answer regarding a body part or sexual function. The audience is wide open for the “cutesy” answers. They roar at something like this: “We asked a hundred women what they take to bed with them when they are feeling romantic.” Answer: Handcuffs, whip … Apparently that is what hooks us. It is not what hooks me, but I put up with it in order to watch Steve, the Master of facial expressions.
One woman once answered a question with a “vulgar” term. She was embarrassed as she saw that answer wasn’t there. She said something like this: “I thought it would be there.” Yes, first answer expected is likely to be edgy if not vulgar.
Modest, Teasing, Titilating, Edgy, Suggestive, Bold, Inviting, Vulgar, Let It All Hang Out. Definitely a downward slope with morals; but upward with the audience who provide the money.
The “modest” stage was fairly common up to the fifties. A girl could still get a guy even though she was modest. But there were some movies and movement into the teasing through edgy stages. That became old hat, move was on to go further. Come on, Marilyn. Marilyn Monroe and her blowing skirt. Not enough. Need more shock value. So more downward slope. Britney, Beyonce, Kardashians, Mylie? This crew make Marilyn look modest. You get the picture.
Where’s the mystery? Where is the challenge. In every stage women set themselves up to be a pushover. Men get the picture, so their behavior “fits” what the women set up. Scream if you like, Women, but you know you are the bait, and you know what you are willing to pay. True, the price got too high! You demanded no respect, you got no respect.
And Men, you are fools who go for this bait! You may face it down the road. You know: “He raped me.” “No, it was consensual.” I dare say many men in prison think “I’m not really like that; I just lost control for a minute.” But you pay with some years.
No mystery, no challenge. No bother with names in a black book, just a tally sheet on the calendar!
God’s plan for sex for love’s sake, for marriage’s sake, for family’s sake, for honor’s sake! Far too passe!
So men turn to men, women turn to women, both turn to children. No danger of pregnancy. Oops, there are still men/women combinations. Must legalize ridding that problem. Abortion is solution.
Sex became perverted in ways that would cause Caligula to blush.
Sadly, our eleven-year-old girls are thrown into “Bold and Inviting” before they even know they are using bait.
Sadly there seem to be no human boundaries set. Prostitution, one night stands, infidelity, homosexual activity – all winked at. Snickered at.
But God set boundaries. He will not wink at such sin. We will reap the seeds of perversion – perhaps by rape, human trafficking, child abuse, abortion, disease, broken hearts.
Reckless sexual practices in any culture do great harm to children both as abortion (before birth) and child abuse (after birth).

…. One side sits in stony silence as the other side whoops for joy. The silence is momentary, then a loud angry roar erupts. The crowd is in mayhem but I don’t really care. The ref made a mistake, but the mistake was in favor of my team. We won!
…. The ref called it! He called it! It’s ours! We won! There’s grousing from the other team. Their coach strides forward. There is a gathering on the field. The announcer warns, “The call might not stand. There will be an automatic review.” Time slows down. What will the video show? I’m yelling in protest. I could see what the ref did not; I know what the video will show. I don’t like it.
My team could get by with lots more before cameras in every hand and videos in every stand at every football game in the land.
Half want a review; half do not. Will the call stand?
Why such fear of another “Roe vs Wade” situation being brought to the Supreme Court? Perhaps the favored side knows a mistake was made. They scream “No Review.” What chance another team of refs will make the same call?
Same Document. “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness….”
At what age is a “man” created? When does he attain the right to life? What does a sonogram show? Sure looks like a baby – a “man” with a right to life …..

Kind of like the road in Mississippi
If you make it dark and make it scary
The result of a fight between GPS and me!
Land O Goshen! ‘Twas a mess,
When I ignored the GPS!
My sister, the driver, was badly disgruntled
My confidence, I admit, became somewhat crumpled.
The woman’s voice – giving my husband advice
Kept saying”Recalculating, Recalculating” – far more than twice.
The compass said South, so I opened my mouth
proclaiming “That’s the direction to go.”
So on we went – though the going was slow.
But all ended well, I knew at least
That at some point we would turn East.
Four hours late, but with great elation
We arrived safely at our destination.
Hi, Friends. I’m back home. Had a wonderful time in Mississippi, excepting this small event. 😀 It isn’t fiction; not even exaggerated much!
Tossing in my first entry to a challenge from https://pixtowords.com/2015/09/06/pic-and-a-word-challenge-1-discovery/
For collection letters gives
Only fake relief
I’m not sure if I am following all the right procedure since this is my first haiku entry for the following challenger who provided the picture:
So many have expressed about my age since I appear so much younger, I thought I might ought to go into a bit of detail about how I know for sure I am eighty-five. I’m doing new math to prove to you that I keep up with the times.
I was eighty in 2014 (that’s because I born in 1934) so how old am I this year (after birthday has passed of course, since 2019’s birthday has occurred, this example I am giving is the right way to figure my present age – if it had not yet occurred it would not be right), but back to 80 in 2014, my birthday has happened this year so how old am I now (and of course, I will be this number of years for the remainder of 2019, we will not bother with fractions at this point). In fact I will be this number of years up to my birthday in January, 2020. That is if you round figure to the lowest even year. No, I don’t mean even year like odd/even – I mean like the total of years I have lived for the complete rotation of the earth around the sun, or is it the sun around the earth? Which is right? That’s modern science; I haven’t studied that out too well. Now back to our math question. If I was eighty in 2014, sorry that should if I “were” eighty, no that’s not the right mood, maybe not mood, but when stating something that might not be, which is sometimes signaled by the word “if”, you are to use “were” not “was” – I think it is the same in modern grammar? At least we will assume it is the same, so back to my question. If I were eighty years old at my birthday anniversary on January 24th in 2014, how old will/would I—no, how old am I now. No, how old was I on January 24, which happened to be last Thursday, in this our present year, 2019. Shall I repeat the question?
Oh, you understand the question. Good, let’s go on to how to work out the solution. Write down 8 x’s, each x will represent the number 10 (which is the first numeral that contains two digits—that is if you do not consider negative numbers). You can write these x’s in either a horizontal or vertical direction – you might want to clump them together like a ball or put them in a circle, or you might want to make an imaginary car with an x used to represent each focal point on the car. Just anyway will do. Now make a row of 10 slashes, draw a line underneath to show that they represent the next set of ten (which by the way, I will need when I reach ninety when I will change them to another x). But I am not really ninety yet so you will need to mark off a slash for each year since 2014 – so 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 – there you are five slashes left.
Put those with your eight x’s, the one’s you used to draw the car. Hold those eight x’s in your head, no just imagine them, put the five slashes with them, how many is that?
Yes, you can use on one hand that five fingers to represent the slashes if you want to. Maybe that is better than the slashes. Why not just have eight buddies come up and each of you will hold up ten fingers, we need five more buddies one finger each. Now let’s count the fingers. Why fingers? Because they will each represent one year, that’s a full rotation of the earth around the sun…
This is not fiction; it is textbook kind of writing, so I guess that makes it non-fiction. 😀
